Bob:

   I have seen strange things when installing prgms from a server (which I 
think that you said in your first msg). Copy the APRSPoint.msi file over to 
your computer from the server, un-install your current version, then click 
on the .msi and reinstall. I would check and make sure that you have the 
correct version as well since there is a different .MSI file for 2002 and 2004.

         Is MP 2002 installed locally on your computer?


  BTW, the new version has LINES!

New in 2.1
1. Station speed is calculated using mph instead of knots,
2. Several bug fixes in the backend,
3. Fixed a spelling error in the tcp connect dialog,

New in 2.0
1. Track lines connecting points can be turned on or off for a tracked station,
2. TNC can be set up to auto connect upon program startup,
3. TNC setup is done by the program automatically,
4. Several bug fixes.
